Fast forward one year later and I still had not worn it. I tried pairing it with different things, but the fit was always slightly off. Instead of giving the sweater away, hubby and I cut the sweater up and upcycled it into a hat.
(Embarrassing fact: What? Is Leslie wearing a hat? Yes, it is a strange sight. I typically don't wear hats because my ginormous head is so large that it never fits any of the hats in the store.)
(*Side note: I think the next time I would have made the hat a bit taller. It just reaches my ears, so it would have been nice to have a bit more room up there.)
And since we had a bit of extra material hubby quickly whipped up another hat for a slightly smaller noggin.
Yup. Because sometimes Baby Chuck and I like getting all matchy matchy like that.
(By the way- Thank you all for voting for my crapty reindeer head! I was one of the top 6 and moved onto the final round of the competition. So, if you have another spare moment, would you please vote for my reindeer head at the Totally Green Contest? Thanks so much for your support!)
